How quaint. A couple of hundred guys dressed as Indians smear coal dust on their faces, board three cargo ships, tomahawk every case of tea on board, and then pitch the whole mess into Boston Harbor, kindling, splinters, and Earl Gray. Kerplunk.
234 years later, it comes as no surprise that another Money Bomb fundraiser for Ron Paul is underway. Tea Party 2007 has raised
almost more than three five six million dollars this Sabbath Day (sneer on, Mr Hannity and, Note to WFB: we don't need your endorsement neither). By way of comparison, third quarter fund raising totals for Ron Paul were more than any other Republican candidate.
The groundswell of support for Dr Paul continues to amaze me. There is a commonality to this grassroots movement of truck drivers and cooks, intellectuals and school teachers, anti-war activists and gun nuts--talk about lions lying with lambs.
Pretty boy Stephanopoulos may be right, Ron Paul may not be electable in a country where half the population lives off the other half via social welfare, corporate welfare, and government contracts (my observation as to the reason, not his). But Ron Paul offers a hope for the future and a message to the Crown. Millions of us have grown weary of the swamp rats in Foggy Bottom who flushed all of the taxes that you paid last year faster than you could read this sentence. And For What?
As I've often said, Ron Paul had me at Abolish the Income Tax but it's a big plus that he doesn't make my skin crawl.
